365 Writing Prompts: On the road

If you could pause real life and spend some time living with a family anywhere in the world, where would you go?

If I get this opportunity to spend time living with a family, it will have to be with Saira’s family in Gujranwala, Pakistan.

I met Saira Aziz in Lahore, Pakistan, we were there to study B.Ed., I went from my hometown Comilla Bangladesh, she came from Gujranwala, Pakistan.

We stayed in the same dormitory, we became friends instantly, Saira was a very warm-hearted sweet person. She knew I was very homesick, she befriended me at a time when I wasn’t sure I could stay and complete my education degree.

I’d like to go to her hometown and stay with her family for sometime, it’ll be so awesome, we could talk about our time we spent in the hostel, the trips we took to Bano Bazaar, eating delicious chaat sitting on a bench, and laughing all the time because we were not allowed to eat outside, and we were doing it because we knew the hostel superintendent will never find out.

Those were such happy days we had no worries, we only had to study and the rest of the things were taken care of by our parents.

Yes this will be superb if I could pause real life and spend time with my good friend,Saira Aziz.

  1. awhh thank you for sharing these sweet memories with us! That sounds really amazing. If I had a chance to live anywhere in the world I would probably choose a family in Pakistan or India as well or even better stay near a Saint in India/Pakistan! Life is a wonderful journey. Sometimes I wish I could go back to India again and stay in an ashram for a while – my time there was truly magical and divine ❤

    Much love and light,
    Shaidi

    Oh how I like this post. Happy days, no worries, with a friend…how nice.

    I very much wish to go to Pakistan, to meet friends, and to visit the shrines of Iqbal, Data Ganj Bakhsh and others.

    Thank you for this post :-).

    All good wishes,
